Or maybe, what you read or heard were said by men trying to influence others into going certain political ways... so they made up things.

Have you really consider all thing?
Politicians are all liars? Is that your point?

I agree.

Obama is just Bush. This is his fourth term. Not a dime's worth of difference...

The same is true of church politics. The New Testament is made up of many competing propaganda works. Written long after Jesus death. None of it based on reality.

"no theory is 100% certain"

Isn't that what I just said?

So what your point? Somebody told you that,(with no doubt, a political agenda in mind) so you believed them LOL!

But the words stand on their own merit...this is how you tell the difference.

You confuse the "LAW" of gravity, with the "THEORY" of gravity, which are totally two different concepts.

We have no theories that are 100% certain, do we?

Correct. Theories attempt to explain facts. They do not become facts.

We all know gravity exists. So do evolution and the big bang. There is still debate amongst physicists about how/why gravity works.

So it is still a theory.

In fact...if evolution was 100% certain, it would be called the "law of evolution", and not the "theory of evolution".

No. A theory is an idea about how something which is a fact (for example evolution) works. If someone comes up with a new understanding of how it works that is a new theory (about how the same fact works).

Wrong again. The term 'law' is often used incorrectly to describe a well tested theory. Newton's Law of Gravity was still a theory. Later proven not to be completely correct.

"So when we are scientifically discussing gravity, we can talk about the law that describes the attraction between two objects, and we can also talk about the theory that describes why the objects attract each other."

The Happy Scientist say's different...

Again, no-one uses that term anymore. perhaps you were thinking of Newton's law of gravity? try that with yoru GPS system...it won't work because the "law" was wrong...totally wrong. it was good math, but the very basic premise of it was totally incorrect.
this ois why no one uses the term laws of science since you were in high school...

Overwhelming evidence is not "proof". There exists a remote possibility that there could be an explanation which defies all evidence and rational understanding. Biblical Delusionists will provide you with that explanation.
